How to get it

  • To request file storage or access to existing group file sharing space, contact the Service Desk. Should you require access to a shared file already in existence, the Service Desk will need the complete path of the folder at the time of the request.

Service availability




Your data is stored on a redundant file system and backed up during the day. Data is copied to another location nightly in case of failure of the primary storage system.

Faculty and staff are given a quota of 10GB.

If you want to request a larger quota, contact the Service Desk at x.7613. A technician will be dispatched to evaluate your personal storage needs and discuss potential options available to you.

Owners of file shares can contact the Service Desk to request permission changes.
